    A co-worker claims that Microsoft doesn't s develop or give any codes to open source. I believe this is untrue, but can't site any instances. Can I get a little help with this argument.

    I was going to say, MS is a HUGE contributor to Linux. In fact, their the 5th largest contributor to the project.
